I'm running out of time this time
 This time I can't be late
 I've got to find my destiny
 Before it turns to fate

 I feel so insecure, I feel so all alone
 I need something, some possession of my own

 I reach for what I want
 I see it in my sleep
 It's hard to get a hold of it
 And it's twice as hard to keep

 Someone help me lifeline

 I grab the rope in front of me
 It keeps slipping through my hands
 I try to climb with all of my strength
 But it trickles through like sand

 This feeling's too secure, it's like a ball and chain
 Yeah, I know there's something dragging in my brain

 Now another rope appears
 I've got it snug and tight
 This is one that I can't let go of
 No matter how I fight
